Farewell for Pastor Peter

While we are all sad to see Pastor Peter leave us, we must be thrilled for he and Carrie and the great opportunity for them to serve in ministry together at their own church – and it’s on Block Island! Pastor Peter’s last day with SUMC will be in early August, but we will say farewell with sweet treats and fellowship in Wesley Hall on Sunday, July 29 after the 9:30 service. And like we did for Pastor Woody, we will offer a cash gift to Peter. If you’d like to contribute, please send a check payable to SUMC with “Farewell Peter” on the memo line to Jennifer Acheson at 117 Hollow Brook Road, Windsor, CT  06095. All checks will be combined, so your gift will be confidential. Please know that this is completely optional and not tax-deductible. The due date is July 22. Thank you!

Christmas in July???

Calling all crafters-we need your help! In December, we will be hosting a Christmas workshop for children to buy Christmas presents for their loved ones. We would appreciate any homemade crafts like, jewelry, Christmas ornaments, stationary, pillows, etc. Plenty of time to craft through the lazy days of summer!
